Westerbeke’s new low-profile 5.0 MCGA is rated 5.0kW, 60Hz (4.2kW, 50Hz).

The MCGA model features sequential multiport electronic fuel injection (MPI), for optimum fuel efficiency, easy starting, improved reliability and reduced emissions.

Electronic speed control maintains the engine at a constant speed and virtually eliminates ‘bogging down’ when load is applied. A watercooled return-less fuel system aids in the prevention of vapour lock for improved performance at high ambient temperatures.

The 5.0 MCGA features a compact, heavy-duty three-cylinder industrial engine for smooth operation at 1800rpm (60Hz) or 1500rpm (50Hz).

Safety warnings and shut-downs include over-speed, low oil pressure and high exhaust and coolant temperatures. Options include two available exhaust outlet orientations, remote start-stop controls, remote lube oil filter, spare parts kits and an auxiliary relay harness kit to draw DC power from the generator set.
